Taking the initiative with MUS
Morrison Utility Services are no strangers to ControlPoint, having been involved in the very first trials of the system within Thames Water back in 2012.
And MUS have wasted no time in introducing some new approaches to getting the very best out of the new BlueBox technology.
Barry Jones (Construction Manager)
With some members of my team already familiar with the technology, I was very keen to make sure that on the Eight20 AMP6 project they set the highest standards of welding quality from the start. This is vital given the scale of the project where we have already completed in excess of 2000 joints.
MUS understand the value of investing in their teams, and ControlPoint has helped them reap the benefits of this approach:
We made absolutely sure that all of the teams had the right training, tooling and equipment to get the 100% quality assessments that our client expects. We even went so far as to introduce MUS branded groundsheets, featuring a reminder of the main areas of scoring and photos of 100% joints from the MUS contract, to act as a visual guide to the site teams.
To provide a further incentive, we have introduced a performance related bonus that is linked to quality of welds. The teams have responded brilliantly, and we are very proud of the standard of work that they have produced. We are committed to raising standards and welcome further improvements/innovations which may allow this.
